and we are forming around 15 to 18 balls.
using a plate or the tortillas presser.
we make a circle,we add some queso fresco and we close it,
lets add some oil to the pan.(the originals are fry completely, but I dont like that much so I add some oil but not much)
and we will add the empanadas and let them cook for a couple of minutes for both sides. (1 minute per side).
take them out of the pan, and put them in a paper napkin to absorb the excess oil.
